The Democrat leader and Mayor of Tirana Lulzim Basha commented Pope's Francis visit to Tirana. Writing on Facebook, Basha says that his visit would be a privilege and a landmark event for every Albanian.

"For our city is a landmark event and a special privilege to host welcome Pope Francis in this historic visit.

This is his first visit in a city and in an European country, an important choice and makes us all an honor, it is a blessing for our country, an extraordinary appreciation for local citizens and for every Albanian.

Tirana and Albania are undoubtedly a worldwide example of tolerance and civil coexistence of people in respect of their religious affiliations, secular or provincial.

These virtues have magnified image of Albanians. Today, the world needs this excellent example .

For me, it is a special honor on behalf of the citizens of Tirana, to deliver to the Holy Father the title "Honorary Citizen" with the motivation:

"In honor of his activity and commitment that has proven to respect and encourage ordinary people without social status or religious divisions, through the example of his life and works, in the name of the Holy See and for chosing to visit Albania's capital, symbol of religious coexistence."

Tirana and its citizens, without distinction of religion, region and ideas are prepared to welcome Pope Francis on Sunday.

"Welcome to Tirana!" This is how Basha ends his message on Facebook. /
